Amur meadow steppe

WWF Abstract

If you are going to visit the Amur Meadow Steppe, be sure to wear your boots. This ecoregion includes wet meadows, floodplains, bogs, and mires--as well as grasslands and gallery forests--along the Amur River valley in China and Russia. Intense seasonal rains cause periodic flooding along this steppe area. These high waters bring abundant nutrients along the alluvial plains, where grasses grow to unusual heights.
